NAVA Gamer's Gathering, June 30th: "Winter Wonderland"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In May, we celebrated the year 1979 by highlighting Bally Astrocade, Odyssey2 and Atari 2600.
- The arcade challenge was for the original Space Invaders game. Youngster Murad Arslaner walked away with the day's high score, besting all of the local gaming veterans.
- The Incredible Wizard (Astrocade), better known as Wizard of Wor in the arcade and other systems provided the tournament thrills. Once again, Stephanie crushed the competition.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.
Pictures tell it best:
This month! The summer is off to a hot start, we're going to cool it down right away. Highlighting various winter pastimes like snowboarding (SSX for 360), hockey (NHL '94 for Genesis) and killing caribou (Ice Trek for Intellivision, pictured). We are even going to try to influence the theme on our back room by conspicuously leaving winter-type games running on the 360 and PS3 systems back there. AND, for our 6pm tournament we'll fly down a frozen mountain together, and the person with the best time wins. Oh yeah, and it's not "SSX", it's Mountain Madness Pro Skiing for the Intellivision. There's ALWAYS a catch at NAVA.
Arcade challenge! Quick... what game features "sno-bees"? Think, think! OK you probably read ahead and if you guessed Sega's Pengo you were right. Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 8pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day. Get your practicing in now!
One quick note. We would NOT recommend bundling up. Remember that there are lots of sweaty gamers about and it's June 30th! Also remember to get your trade boxes in order and wear your NAVA t-shirt (or get one) for the maximum discount on store purchases... it's NAVA time!
